Architecture student Felix Ruder designed Symbio, a 100 percent  biodegradable stool as part of a class project at Sweden’s Lund School of Architecture. Inspired by Alan Wisman’s book “What Happens to the World Without Us,” the chair’s seat is made from reclaimed polished black granite and its legs are made from reclaimed oak. “One can watch how nature slowly eats the legs and all that is left is the stone,” writes Ruder. + Felix Ruder The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Supporting responsible ocean management: Are ‘catch shares’ the right plan?

Comments Off on Supporting responsible ocean management: Are ‘catch shares’ the right plan?

The story of overfishing is old by now. Commercial fishing of North Atlantic Cod , once a bedrock of New England’s economy, collapsed along with the fishery in the mid-1990s. The same story played out on the West Coast in 2008, when the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) declared a “ fishery failure ” for Chinook salmon. Recently, government regulators, non-profits, and fishermen themselves have turned to “ catch share ” programs to implement conservation measures. Guided by regulations from the Magnuson-Stevens Act , the thought is that if enough fish are left in the water to reproduce, they can keep the species alive, and (hopefully) replenish numbers closer to the fisheries’ historic strength. That sets the stage for conflict with fishermen, who suddenly have a cap on their income. Read the rest of Supporting responsible ocean management: Are ‘catch shares’ the right plan?

Comments Off on New ‘Merchants of Doubt’ film to unmask scientific “liars for hire” this Friday

You’ve been lied to. If you pay attention to scientific reporting on almost any topic that impacts the health and well-being of our planet and its people, then at some point, what you’ve heard about the causes or effects have been untrue. The new documentary, Merchants of Doubt , debuts this Friday and is well-positioned to be a long-awaited strike back against perpetrators of propaganda and misinformaton campaigns aimed at the American people. Not just another anti-global warming documentary, Merchants of Doubt seeks to tear the mask off the men responsible for whitewashing everything from tobacco use to acid rain. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Late last night the Solar Impulse successfully completed the world’s first solar-powered intercontinental flight! After taking off from Spain, Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg piloted their Solar Impulse airplane over 515 miles to their destination in Rabat, Morocco. “This flight marks a new stage in the history of the project because we have reached another continent. Furthermore, after almost 20 hours of flight, we landed with a full set of batteries. This is extraordinary as it represents an increase in confidence in new technologies.” Said André Borschberg as the Solar Impulse landed on the runway.
